Nanyang Technological University and UK partners heightens cooperation in water industry
Date:10/2/2009

The United Kingdom and Singapore are focussing on innovative technologies and business tie-ups to promote further cooperation and collaboration between the two countries in the water industry.

Some 200 representatives from industry and academia are meeting today to share the latest in water technologies and to explore new opportunities for collaboration in the strategic area of water security.

Gracing the inaugural UK-Singapore Water Futures Forum held at Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore is His Royal Highness The Prince Andrew, The Duke of York, who is visiting Singapore in his capacity as the UK's Special Representative for International Trade and Investment.

The heightening of the UK-Singapore cooperation in water and wastewater management underlines the increasing challenge facing national governments today. This can be seen in the rapidly escalating demand for water due to population growth, growing industrialisation and urbanisation and the threat of climate change. International cooperation, together with innovative water technologies and strong policies is therefore vital in determining the sustainable supply of water, more so for small city-states like Singapore.

The Duke of York said: "The UK and Singapore enjoy excellent business ties in many diverse areas. One area in which cooperation could be further encouraged is in the area of water management and supply. The inaugural Water Futures Forum organised by UK and Singapore is thus a good opportunity for representatives from both countries to share the latest in water technology that may provide improved solutions in the security and supply of water."

The Water Futures Forum is organised by NTU's Nanyang Environment and Water Research Institute (NEWRI), UK Trade & Investment and the UK-Singapore Partners in Science. The Forum is also supported by the British High Commission Singapore, British Water, The Royal Society of Chemistry and PUB
